look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

7% beers aren't usually very good at all, giving off a distinctive alcohol taste. This is most likely the worst I have tested, it is hardly drinkable; tastes like Swedish low-point beer with added vodka (commonly known as a "busgrogg" in Swedish).

Very little head. Weak carbonate. Slight watered-down tastes of barley, corn and rice. And oh yeah, alcohol.

Avoid, unless you have an extremely good deal on it going and you're looking to get drunk cheap.

This beer is not retired as I bought it just weeks ago in Estonia. It is a 7.2% version in 33cl can though...

1.9/5  rDev n/a
look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

A: Pour is almost strawcolored with a soapy large white head that only leaves faint lacings.

S: Corn galore. This smells almost like a bad Euro Strong Lager - marzipan is rich. Semi-sweet malt and some fruityness.

T: The corn is way in the back. The sweet malt is much stronger compared to the smell. Some hoppy notes are also present.

M: Aftertaste is short. Body is thin and carbonation is rich, offensive. The alcohol is very obvious.

O: This is a strange beer. If it had been listed as an Euro Strong Lager my ratings would have been higher - but for a Doppelbock this is a poor excuse; too pale, too much corn in both smell and taste and the notes of marzipan is totally wrong in this style. The only decent thing was the taste, that wasn't as bad as the rest of it...

Can from a grocery store in Tallinn. From notes.

A - Poured a light gold with yellow notes. Strong visible carbonation and a one finger white head. Some slight retention saves this.

S - Bad. Corn, sweet grain, really sweet and almost offensive.

T - Same as the aroma sadly. Plus some slight grassy hops. Less offensive but still not good.

M - Strong carbonation and a medium body. Lingers with some sweetness.

O/D - Just a bad beer. Easy to get down unlike some other strong Euro Lagers but hot damn this tasted bad.

Rather a malt liquor than a doppelbock.

Color pale yellow, low carbonation level, not much head, practically no lace.

Smell very weak, malty with some hint of sourdough.

Taste malty, on the sweetish side, mouthfeel very thin despite high level of alcohol and normal gravity. Hop component is nearly missing, aftertaste short and forgettable.

Barely drinkable, that's it

The colour is yellow, the white, two finger thick foam sinks down rather quick.

The smell is a bit fruity with some sweet malt.

The carbonation is a bit short; otherwise it is the usual lager mouth feel.

The taste is mild, almost watery with some alcohol. The aftertaste is somewhat bitter.

This is a boring lager. As bad as is gets without being faulty.

Pours out straw color with a slight white head. A light yellow double bock? I guess so, but I'm not happy about it. Tastes like a double bock in some ways. Malty sweet with some of those bock tones woven in. Goes down smooth and with a plesant aftertaste makes for easy drinking. But the color! Why?
